Cailer Woolam Deadlifts 900 Pounds at 206!

Posted on Watch Cailer pull one sensational lift that if he's able to pull off in competition at 198 would be an astonishing feat!

We didn’t want to finish off 2016 without one more incredible deadlift video, and thanks to Cailer Woolam, we aren’t disappointed.

The 22 year old Woolam — who we’ve seen compete around 220lbs before — just posted this INSANE video of a new raw deadlift PR. 900 solid pounds, raw and in sumo-style, with a hook grip.

And he completed the lift weighing in at a mere 206 pounds, which may very well put Woolam among the best pound-for-pound deadlifters in the world.

Everyday life is going to have its battles. It's up to you if you fight back or not. Powerlifting is a constant fight of pushing myself to being the best. Sometimes it pays off and sometimes it doesn't. But it's all about not giving up when things don't go your way.
Luckily I've had @rocksdiscount with me every step of the way through my powerlifting career to support and help me. And that's where you'll find me today at 13410 San Pedro until 8pm maybe later. So come by and let's get you started on your journey.
Powerlifting lives matter

-Annual ICG event another huge success-

The Iron Chamber Gym in Canton, Ohio hosted its annual Bench Press & Deadlift championships welcoming 87 outstanding lifters from 3 states. This years event marked 7 consecutive years of more than 85 lifters, and continues to be among the most well run, and largest non sanctioned events in the nation. As always, lifters were treated to an auditorium theater venue, comfortable seating for spectators, a family atmosphere and a visit from Santa himself with many gifts for all of the children in attendance. This years event was sponsored by Live Large, United Grinding & Machine, Jacked & Tattooed and NFP Gear. In all, 13 flights of lifters gave their all to a roaring crowd and all were on their way back home by 3:30. The ICG would like to thank all in attendance for being part of the annual event, and are looking forward to next year's "family reunion" when all return for the 2017 ICG Bench Press & Deadlift Championships.
